AFTERBURN: Sustainable Design – Oct 20, 2016, 6-9 PM

Afterburn User Group

AFTERBURN: No more blank stares … Breaking the myths of sustainable design

THEME
Sustainable Design

WHAT
Design Engine is hosting our AfterBurn networking event with a discussion in our Chicago studio.  Join us Thursday, October 20th from 6:00 PM – 9:00 PM at 120 N. Green Street # 605 – AFTERBURN  = AFTERWORK presentations with friends (and beer). It’s a great way to decompress and learn a thing or two.

Solidworks Surfacing

One eco-friendly spoon concept created using SolidWorks Surfacing

The design stage of a product dictates the majority of the financial cost of a product – the same is true for the environmental impact.  The tide of interest in sustainable products is turning – but a lot of myths about the how and why of sustainable design linger.  This session will debunk some of these myths and provide practical concepts for bringing sustainability into every design, including use of 3D product design software to evaluate sustainability of your designs.

Afterwards we will have conversation fueled by enthusiasm and a few beers.

Agenda:

  • Common Myths of Sustainable Design and Response  –  Laura Flanigan
  • Solidworks Sustainability Add-in Overview – Bart Brejcha

  • Solidworks Surfacing tips and tricks – Bart Brejcha – A preview of  our upcoming Design Engine SolidWorks Surfacing Class Oct 31-Nov 4

 

WHO

lauraPresenter Laura Flanigan has 15 years of experience defining and creating solutions for business innovation and strategic design to help clients achieve their visions for sustainable products, business practices and operations. Her solutions provide innovative responses to changing market expectations and regulations, enhance brand reputation, develop eco-product claims, and create long-term resilient business models and supply chains.  Read her recent article on Design-engine.com here: http://design-engine.com/five-steps-to-using-sustainability-data-in-design/

 

WHY
The idea behind doing a monthly 3D CAD User Meeting was born from frustration that there is no Chicago PTCUSER organization. We decided to be proactive because we love this stuff and it is downright shameful Chicago doesn’t have an active platform to network and share knowledge.

WHERE
Design Engine is located in the West Loop of Chicago (southwest side of Green street & Randolph; Exit off 94 in the West loop).  RSVP for the event here.
